- Asian Rhinos are classed as critically endangered with only around 63 left on the planet.
- They are affected by habitat loss and fragmentation and illegal wildlife trade.
- Asian rhinos are slowly recovering thanks to years of successful conservation effort, but they’re all at risk from the rising threat of poaching and loss of habitat.
- The greater one-horned rhino once roamed across most of Asia, but now it’s found mainly in India and Nepal, and is returning to Bhutan.
- They have been around for millions of years and being big-bodied vegetarians, they eat a lot of plants every day to meet their energy needs which means they landscape the forest and also distribute seeds.
